Benefits of Incorporating a Dubai Mainland Company
Registering Your Business in Dubai Mainland
Dubai is one of the seven emirates in the United Arab Emirates. In terms of starting a business, Dubai is internationally recognized for its remarkable infrastructure & growth and has quickly built its reputation for being a major global business hub in the region.
Having a Dubai Mainland license issued by the Dubai DED (Department of Economic Development) allows you to conduct business locally across the UAE as well as internationally with no restrictions; that is why this is the most popular choice among entrepreneurs and companies looking to start or expand in the UAE.
Dubai’s Department of Economic Development (DED) is the government authority in charge of the licensing and registration of corporate entities in mainland Dubai. The DED’s licensing and registration procedure is streamlined to offer ease of registration based on specific business activities. The Commercial Companies Law (CCL) is the federal law that regulates all entities set up in the UAE mainland, and governs corporate entities set up in mainland Dubai. With Dubai Mainland, the license type determines whether you will need a local sponsor or local service agent. Dubai’s laws and regulations are frequently amended to provide a flexible and up-to-date legal framework for commercial best practice. Recently, the Commercial Companies Law (CCL) has announced that over 1,000 commercial and industrial activities will be available for 100% foreign ownership as of June 2021.
This allows professionals to carry out their services or craft in their field of expertise.
This is issued for the purpose of commercial & trade activities and allows for import, export, distribution, & retail.
This can either be an extension of a foreign company or a local company (UAE free zone or mainland).
This enables the import of raw materials & the manufacturing of specified goods for the purpose of exporting finished products.
What is a Local Service Agent?
When setting up a professional license or a branch, the business needs to appoint what is known as a Local Service Agent (LSA), which has to be a UAE national (natural or legal person). The LSA requirement is purely procedural. The LSA has no role, interest, or right in the business. Typically, the LSA’s role is to facilitate business matters related to the government such as the trade license, immigration files, and labour files for the employees’ visas. The LSA is paid a fixed annual fee for providing such services which are all outlined in the Local Service Agent Agreement which is signed before the Dubai DED. EZONE provides a Corporate Local Service Agent for companies at reasonable annual rates.
